Itinerary

Pick-up and drive to the Setubal Wine Region

On our way out of Lisbon we will pass by the Marques de Pombal Statue square. From here we will have a 35 minute drive to the Setúbal Wine Region.

On the way, passing by our "Golden Gate" bridge.

On this full-day tour, you will travel first to Azeitão, an area that is well known for its wines and cheese. On the way there, we will pass Lisbon´s old bridge, our "Golden Gate". Reaching the Setúbal Wine Region, you will visit some of the region’s top wine cellars and taste fine wines and other produces.

Quinta de Alcube family

One of the wineries you will visit is Quinta de Alcube. A family owned wine cellar for over a century (since 1913). It is a traditional cellar, that produces up to 350,000 litters per year. Here you will be able to taste 5 of their wines and understand how wine is done and their philosophy.
Their wines are sold only directly to customers, making it difficult to find in shops.

José Maria da Fonseca family

Another stop will be at the renowned wine cellars of José Maria da Fonseca, where you will learn about the winery’s history, since 1834, and sample 2 of its wines. This is one of the oldest wineries in Portugal, and the oldest of the region.
Inside you will see the oldest wine collection of Portugal (Fortified Wine) and one of the oldest of Europe. Also here, you discover the oldest brand (over 160 yrs), and where they use unique handmade mahogany barrels, that have a capacity of up to 20.000 liters.

Casa Mãe de Palmela

Your third and final experience, will be in the old village of Palmela. Here you will taste up to 5 more wines, in the “Mother House” of this wine region, where you can see and taste, what most of the 21 different wineries in this region produce.
